Laptopmag: Toshiba Satellite E105-S1402 review


"We generally like the Toshiba Satellite E105-S1402, and it's a good first step for Best Buy's Blue Label program. You get good battery life without having an awkward extended battery hanging off the back of the system, the backlit keyboard is a nice touch, and there's plenty of horsepower for running Vista. However, the design isn't for everyone, and the quality of the keyboard isn't top-notch. For a sleeker design and better graphics performance, you might want to take a look at the baseline 13.1-inch MacBook ($1,299). Or you could opt for a similarly configured HP Pavilion dv4t with a 12-cell battery. But the E105 is a pretty good choice for shoppers looking for a full-featured mobile system."

Pros: Newer and moderately beefy C2D, 4GB RAM, 320GB HDD, sufficient graphics power for high def media center usage.

Cons: $1200 should get you at least a mid range dedicated GPU today, from either nVidia or ATi. Also, if 15" is absolutely your thing, spend no more than $1000. If you're plunking down more, go for a 17".

Verdict: Not worth it. Get something from Dell or HP, and compromise a little on the CPU to get as good a GPU as you can afford. A low end C2D is a LOT easier to upgrade than an mid range (but integrated) GPU.
